There is a long-standing conspiracy to keep the American public uninformed. Don't believe me? Google "the fully-informed jury". Now find the part of the constitution that talks about separation of church and state (the truth: it's NOT IN the constitution). Do you know how many political parties are allowed by the constitution. Answer: none! Political parties aren't mentioned.
Normally, I am a passionate Republican. This election, however, I'm having second thoughts; mainly because of Sarah Palin. The thought of her stepping in as president, should something happen to her 72 year old, 4 times cancer-surviving running mate scares the hell out of me.
Don't get me wrong. I like John McCain. And I'm relatively sure that Palin would make a good vice pres. But folks, can you see her at a G8 summit talking to Vladimir Putin? Or pumping up the troops just before a major offensive against Iran? There's a sight to make you fill up your Levis.
Fear not!!! There IS a choice.
Many people are unaware that there are several viable political parties in the good old U S of A. To learn about my other favorite, check out the Constitution party. Here's a quote from Wikipedia
about them.
"The Constitution Party advocates a platform which aims to reflect the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights. Their policies are similar to that of the Libertarian Party in their strong belief in federalism, limited government, and non-intervention, but similar to the Republican Party in their stance against abortion, homosexual marriage, embryonic stem cell research, and illegal immigration."

Now you know that you have a choice, and you're a little more informed. God bless the USA

If you've read my insane rants for any length of time, then I'm sure that you're familiar with my political persuasions. This was forwarded to me by a kindred soul. I'll let it speak for itself.


I'm voting Democrat because:
1) I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

2) freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

3) when we pull out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they now think we're good people.

4) I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday CAN tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

5) I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

6) I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as THEY see fit.

7) I believe three or four pointy headed elitist liberals need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would NEVER get their agendas past the voters.

8) I believe that when the terrorists don't have to hide from us over there, when they come over here I don't want to have any guns in the house to fight them off with.

9) I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my horse.

10) I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

Now doesn't makes you wonder why anyone would EVER vote Republican ?

And that's my opinion. What's yours?

I think that the credit for this piece goes to a gentleman named Jared Turner, but I'm not sure. If I'm mistaken, please let me know and I'll post a correction.

Recently, a local police officer was arrested for sexual abuse. He also shot and killed a young, unarmed Irish man. Two separate incidents. His lawyer says that we the people shouldn't think about the killing when trying him for the rape. Yeah! Right!
This crooked cop got me to thinking (which can be a dangerous activity for me). Just how many of those people hired to protect us FROM criminals really ARE criminals?
If it is, as the police and media would have us believe, a very few, then these few crooked cops are making it much more difficult for the honest, hard working men and women who lay their lives on the line to keep our society civil and livable.
On the other hand, if there a lot of cops raping, killing dealing drugs and generally engaging in nefarious activities, then you and I are in a real spot. When a cop comes to the door or pulls us over in our car, do we comply, let them in our home, hand them all of our paperwork or whatever else they ask, or do we arm ourselves and do our best to barricade them from our homes, cars and businesses in an effort to protect ourselves and our families from getting kidnapped, raped and murdered by the very people that are supposed to protect us?
This dilemma may very well get some good cops killed. What do you do? If any other criminal shows up at your door and tries to force their way in, you have (in most states) the right to use deadly force to protect your life. But if you shoot a cop, even if he/she was trying to kill you, you'll probably spend the rest of your life in prison. Or worse. After all; who is the court going to believe? How many of the cops that are accused of a crime ever get ARRESTED or CONVICTED? Most bad cops that I've known (quite a few) got promotions instead of jail time. Fellow officers won't purge them from their numbers. Prosecutors are loath to pursue their misdeeds. The media whitewashes their crimes to "protect the good cops".
What is really needed, in my opinion, is a citizen review board that scrutinizes every allegation against any law enforcement personnel or organization, with mandatory federal prosecution for any crime committed by them. I also believe that, other than minor traffic offenses, a crime committed by any federal, state, county or local law enforcement officer should be a separate, federal felony. Set up an anonymous system for the good cops to report and investigate these crimes and get the oversight out of the hands of the good-ol-boys networks and into someplace where there's at least a chance of the people getting some justice.
THAT will really protect the "good cops" by preventing any retaliation towards the good cops from their coworkers. And maybe we the people can begin to regain some trust and confidence in our justice system.
That's my opinion. Tell me what you think.

Well! I'm back. Had to deal with a few health issues and couldn't keep up with my writing. And with all that has gone on in the world since December, I don't know where to start. How about tomatoes?
Salmonella is running rampant and every restaurant seems terrified to offer you a tomato. Now, the FDA (in all their efficient glory) has decided that tomatoes might not even be the source. Gee! Ya think? It has hit in about 35 of the lower 48 states; from coast to coast.
I don't suppose that the Office of Homeland Security has considered a biological attack. After all; Iran has so much good feeling for us, and couldn't possibly possess the technology to grow such an uncommon pathogen. So, of course, something like an outbreak of Ebola or hemorrhagic fever couldn't possibly happen; especially with the extreme security that the US of A exercises over its borders and how well it keeps undocumented workers out of the workforce and away from the domestic food chain.
OIL!!! Any one that thinks $10 a gallon gas can't happen here has never been to Europe. In this country, we have all the oil we need for about 25 years if we want to drill for it. That should be enough time to develop ethanol and hydrogen fuel cells and get them widely and economically distributed. Won't happen, though. America will hold on to its oil reserves until the rest of the world is out. Then, theoretically, we'll be in the drivers seat.
Unfortunately it isn't going to work that way.
The rest of the world WILL have hydrogen and ethanol wide spread within 10 to 15 years. Except, maybe for the Chinese. Demand will be at an all time low by about 2025, and China and the US will be the guys still screwing up the air that every one else has to breath. The middle east won't have the revenues of the last 150 years and will either slip back into the dark ages or (more probably) take all the money they've been saving for the occasion and start a really big war in an attempt to grab some other revenue sources. If you read the last chapter in the best seller of all time, you can read all about it.
Just some food for thought. Gotta go. I need some gas so I can drive to the store to buy some tomatoes for the salad tonight.
